TKC MUST READ!!! AMID FIERCE CRITICISM: KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY DEFENDS AIRPORT PROTEST AGAINST PREZ TRUMP!!!



An important missive from Kansas City's top elected leader addresses concern over his recent participation in anti-Trump protest . . . He dodges the issue and attempts to paint the protest as something else despite a bevy of signs and chants which suggest otherwise . . .

From The Office Of Kansas City Mayor Sly James: Protests and Peaceful Activism

“This is not about who we oppose or fear. This is about who we are and who we want to be.”

There is simply no getting around the fact that we are in the midst of polarizing times. Because of this, I want to acknowledge concerns raised by residents across our city in recent days and weeks.

For politicians in Washington, it can be easy to toss around slogans or engage in politically-motivated policy making. However, by the time these decisions reach our cities, they have real consequences. They affect real people’s lives. The lives of teachers or parents, business owners and students in our communities. Our friends, neighbors, and family. People who want a better life for their kids and families. And what has come out of Washington in the last 10 days are actions that drive wedges between people.

Whether it’s a travel ban that targets a religious group under the guise of national security, proposing walls to keep people out, or casually making false claims of widespread voter fraud – these actions question the very foundation of our character as a people and a democracy. So when our community in Kansas City stands up for what it believes is right, or stands up against policies that do not reflect our character, I support it wholeheartedly.

Protecting our country is a priority every elected official shares in every town, city and state. But we also know that our city is made stronger by our openness, diversity and tolerance.

We have a lot to be proud of in our city right now, and we have big challenges we must work together to solve.

I am proud of the thousands who have gathered in recent weeks to exercise their constitutional rights, to stand up, speak out, and show the country what our city stands for.

But I’m especially proud because our city has done it peacefully. This is the only way we can display what we stand for. Peaceful, focused advocacy.

Mayors are a reflection of the values of the city they serve. That’s why I told people gathered at the airport this weekend – - this isn’t about President Trump or one party or the other. This is not about who we oppose or fear. This is about who we are and who we want to be. This is about us. Our character as a city and community. We cannot surrender to bigotry or manufactured fear. That undermines our focused and peaceful opposition to issues that drive wedges between us. We cannot realize our vision for a better future through anger. We cannot enhance, or honor, our community by violence.

So it’s on us to speak out. But we can never compromise our character. We must agree on, and protect, the dignity of all our neighbors. As long as I am honored to serve the city I love as its Mayor, I will do all that I can to both stand up for and protect the citizens of this great city. And we will continue to be a city that welcomes people looking for a better life. A community that builds bridges across our divides, and works tirelessly to make our city the best place in the world to live, work and raise your family in peace and fellowship.

Saying what he thinks you want to hear, all the while not giving a damn what you think or want.

Proud???? He's an idiot, he completely misrepresents the so called ban and that it is religious. It's temporary to make sure all the proper vetting is in place and to keep those out that want to do harm to America and it's for 90 days.

Where was the outrage when Obama did it for 180 days 6 years ago. Sly is playing politics while claiming he's not.

Those who protested are in 2 classes, 1) being paid by Soros money 2) uninformed who don't look at the facts.

He's obviously either crazy, desperate, or both.

Sly the stupid. Do you think his grandstanding at the airport that he wants to rebuild is going to impress President Trump. Sly is not going to get the time of day in Washington. Sly has NO business in this federal issue. Maybe he should start focusing on crime, getting trash pickup on time, lowering taxes for the middle class who are fleeing Kansas City.

Anonymous said...

Good job, sly james. The situation in D.C. will affect all of us. They will come for you next. No one should volunteer to be bullied. It is time to fight back.

Greedo said...

BUT he is not fighting back, he is trying to have it both ways. Refusing to take a stand.

Trump is unstable. He should be impeached soon. He has multiple conflicts of interest, in cahoots with the Russians, he is unfair in his characterization of an entire religion of about a billion people. People we need to be on our side. We will never get rid of terrorism without the help of many muslims. Alienation won't help accomplish this at all.

Trumps going to need to send the Military into KCMO to help the police get crime under control.

Trump never had any nite of helping the cities of America anyway. If u aren't a 1%er you will not get help from trump. That is quite obvious.

Anonymous said...

Trump does have a lot of useful idiots doing his bidding who are not in the 1%, that is for sure. But you can rest assured that he doesn't give a shit about you either so maybe you better get used to that because the economic downturn which is coming our way will make the disaster around 2007 look like a cakewalk.

No matter how much money or power someone has they still have to follow the constitution and they can't disobey the rule of law. Trump is not following the rule of law or the traditions our country was founded on. He is an embarrassment and a joke.

Everything Trump is doing is legal. What you don't like is it isn't politically correct and he actually has a set of balls.

Anonymous said...

Trump is being challenged on multiple legal fronts. The definition of illegal. Several federal judges disagree with him. So sorry. He has to be back off that being the case.

Sick of hearing about trump's genitals. That is a terrible way to run a country. A brain is a lot more appropriate.

To all of you liberal morons who think Trump is a bully and Trump doesn't care about us. He just gave $10,000.00 to a man who lost his job, someone who he had never met. He didn't have to take this job, we all know he has plenty of money, but he is just as sick as we are of you people destroying our country. Have you ever had 10 years of experience on a job and watch an illegal who doesn't even speak English get hired over you? I have, the illegals are the ones who get exploited and bullied.

Hear are some facts that you dirty liberals can research.
Under the Clinton administration how many people ended up dead if they didn't agree?

Obama is the one who was pulling strings with Putin. You can watch that on the movie 2016. Straight from that assholes mouth.

Obama is the one who has no tolerance for Christians, just pull up the video on you tube where he calls Christians and Jesus Christ radicals.

Obama let extremely dangerous MUSLIM criminals out of GITMO while he turned a deaf ear to Christians being beheaded in MUSLIM countries.

You fucking liberals have spit on us, sent that bitch beyonce out with her big mouth that got cops killed for no reason. You lie about the refugees, you don't even know what is going on. they aren't being banned, Trump is doing it before we end up like France where women (who aren't muslim) are disappearing because muslim men don't like women who show their skin. You call Trump vicious names and make nasty comments about him and his daughter.
You people need to learn what Islam is about.
Mayor James is an embarrassment and he is the one who is inciting hatred in Kansas City, and I might add if there are anymore kids on the plaza this summer who beat up people for nothing Mayor James will be reported for doing nothing and promoting violence.

So keep it up liberals we have had enough of your ignorance and your abuse.

Oh and... Hillary can't even stand up or walk without falling down, she's sick and you dumb fucks still voted for her. She cheated at the debate, you can clearly see the man give Lester Holt the list of questions from her podium. Don't forget she is married to a serial rapist, and Hillary is a big supporter of the Arkansas KKK her dad was KKK and Bill Clinton was head of the Fulbright Foundation.
Stupid Liberals.

Hats off to Obama he is the one who broke the camels back, at least he pushed us hard enough to put Trump in.
Almost forgot Obama's hatred toward the Jews.

Obama's quote from his book..( If the winds should change in an ugly direction I will stand behind the muslims.) Not Americans but Muslims!!!! A clear statement of hatred toward the United States.

Apparently quite a few people sent Trump articles of The Mayor going to the airport to support the protesters. Trump was reportedly taking serious action including threatening to take away and or not give federal funds to KC to honor the disrespect Sly showed to the commander-in-Chief.

There go the bridges- street car extension- airport makeover, etc.

pseudo leadership.

true leadership would be stopping the carnage.

Thank You Mayor James. Some of us have worked very hard to get the street car extension underway politically and to change the minds of the people on the airport. I even started talking up the $800 million proposal. WELL I AM THROUGH. Your big mouth has killed any possibility of acquiring Federal help, in fact your big mouth has guaranteed that Trump and gang will cut Kansas City off at the knees. Thanks.

Sly James is a PERPETUAL EMBARRASSMENT to KCMO

His psyche is totally fused with the failed policies of Liberal Socialism as expressed through the Democratic Party. His answer to any social issue is to expand government, raise taxes, and curtail individual liberty.

Compared to his mayoral predecessor, James has:
increased the budget for the Mayor's Office,
expanded his office staff,
taken on full-time KCPD security detail who chauffeur him everywhere,
co-opted the fake news people at KSHB,
has the KC Star in his pocket,
traded campaign cash from Burns and McDonnell to build them a HQ,
continued and expanded the taxpayer cash giveaway to the Cordish Co.,
tried to ram through a subsidized convention hotel to his former Mayoral opponent,
refused to listen to residents satisfaction with KCI,
tore up downtown and squandered millions for a bus on fixed rails,
ignored the backlog of deferred maintenance to create a crisis situation necessitating an emergency $800M bond proposal,
rewarded a servile City Manager with pay raises and contract extension,
failed to honor his abandoned house promise to East-side residents until a broadcast documentary took him to task,
presided over record-setting KCMO homicide counts,
presided over a KCMO budget that's treading water and about to drown,
.......but there were some nice pizza parties for the kids.

Keep it Frosty!
